Counterfeit medicines

Updated 16 August 2012

An increasing number of medicinal products are seized by customs.

In 2006 the Danish Health and Medicines Authority (the former Danish Medicines Agency) took the initiative to build a network against counterfeit medicine both in Denmark and internationally.

The network is made up of authorities, industrial associations and all links in the supply chain.

The network meets regularly to discuss issues related to counterfeit medicinal products to initiate local and cross-cutting precautionary measures.
